The Marka form an ethnic group very close to the Bambara, whose art is characterised by masks covered with brass plates, like this one.
For the Marka, “Do” is the spirit to which the mask gives shape and constitutes its expression.
Do comes from the bush, through the mask of leaves, and in some mythical cases, via fibre masks with a carved wooden head.
In the religious system of the Marka society, “Do” is the most invoked spirit and its cult is the most elaborate one.
The Marka are organised in structured and hierarchical societies of masks.
There is an initiatory language, a means of communication spoken by the initiates.
Height: 46 cm.

Weight: 1,5 kilograms.
Registered shipment with acknowledgement of receipt.
Sold without stand.

    Bonjour
    Malheureusement je n'ai pas signalé la restauration la prochaine fois ça servira de leçon même si je trouve que votre avis est dure.J'ai bien reçu votre mail je ne pouvais pas y repondre car j'étais en voyage en Afrique. Je n'aurais pas pu faire de ristourne car l'enchère est de 47 € je suis perdant et de plus j'ai un avis negatif. L'objet je l'ai eu dans cette état ce n'est pas moi qui a fait la restauration. Et heureux de savoir que vous l'avez trouvé belle. Les 2 avis negatif que jai recu dans mes évaluations cest des enchères de 40€ et cest bien dommage car vous faites de bonne affaires et vous laisser des avis negatif . Bonne continuation

  • We love the mask and were so pleased by its quick arrival. Still, surprised that the info that the beak (?) which had broken off and replaced, was not mentioned in the description. A major omission,

  • Apart from the fact that it took a long time for delivery, they were very poorly and unprofessionally packed. Apart from a few layers of insecure bubblewrap inside a flimsy cardboard box, the mask was left to rattle around. I'm totally amazed no damage occurred. Under these circumstances, €20 delivery fee seems excessive.

    Hello have won a bid a very nice mask to 35 € and you ralé on the fact that the delivery lasted a little time as if it was me who makes the delivery and 20 € delivery costs is more than reasonable.

    The next time you've gone your way no need for customers who like to moan for nothing.




    Bonjour avez gagné un enchère un tres beau masque à 35 € et vous ralé sur le fait que la livraison a durée un peu de temps comme si c'était moi qui fait la livraison et 20€ de frais de livraison est plus que raisonnable.
    La prochaine fois passé votre chemin pas besoin de clients qui aime râlé pour rien.
